Dotty’s friend Hex is a simple two dimensional line. He can make angles and the most he can make is six. His favourite shape is a hexagon. He’s happy with this, but one day he really wants to make a curve. With a lot of effort he learns to bend, then multiply, and suddenly he can create all kinds of shapes, eventually popping into three dimensions, discovering he can turn into anything he wants to. Join Dotty as she follows Hex into his fantastical digital world, setting off on a roller-coaster ride of digital surprises.
Tom Dale Company creates extraordinary performances that bring together urban contemporary dance, electronic music and digital art.
Digitopia’s visually stunning integration of live dance and digital technology creates a world that defies the usual rules of gravity and physics, where straight lines curve and sound is seen.
“A fascinating integration of live dance and digital technology…” ★★★★ The Herald (ROSH)
As part of the visit of Digitopia, our unique family show of dance and digital wizardry, we have some FREE foyer activities to keep you busy before and after the show – inspired by the world of Digitopia where the usual rules of gravity and physics don’t apply.
What does your Digitopia sound like? Make digital music using a specially commissioned sound app, developed by The Mixed Reality Lab at the University of Nottingham.
Be imaginative with shapes, paper and colours in drop-in Digitopia inspired arts and crafts sessions.
And don’t forget the Stay and Play workshop after each show. Join the dancers on the set in the world of Digitopia. This is a FREE event but please book tickets through Box Office beforehand.
